Honor Enrichment Honor enrichment promotes personal growth and allows Pathfinders to explore their interests by earning new honors, learning new skills, and studying new content areas.Some honors have had tips added to help you with this. Others have information at the very beginning of the honor to help you decide if your circumstances are suitable for earning the honor. This Wiki includes honors that have been approved at or above the Division level which are divided into eight honor categories that each share a common background or field color on the patch.
Regional honors are grouped together, followed by the Master Awards and Other Pathfinder awards and pins. Afterward, there is a page of patches that are no longer current and have been retired or discontinued. Finally, there is sortable list of all honors and Guidelines for Contributors. Most AY Honors are adopted by the General Conference for the whole world but some honors have Division specific variations, or have only been adopted on a regional basis.
Honors adopted at the GC or Division level are presented in 8 named and color coded categories, while any other Honors are presented in a regional category.
The header on each Honor page shows what level of the organization has approved the Honor. Anyone is welcome to work on any Honor but may need to request the patch from the approving level or a conference office within that area. This answer book is being written by Pathfinders for Pathfinders. Anyone even non-Pathfinders can contribute new answers or edit existing answers, and the reader is encouraged to become an active participant in the development of this continually expanding and improving work for the benefit of Pathfinders worldwide.
See the Contributor Guidelines further down this page. The stage icons indicate which Honors or categories have comprehensive answers and which still need work. An honor's development stage is simply the percentage of requirements which have been fully answered unanswered and partially answered requirements are considered unanswered.
The same logic is applied to honor categories, with partially answered honors contributing nothing to the completeness level. The South American Division has a large list of honors that are not yet approved at the General Conference level. Many of them can be found in the following list, but please be aware the patches can only be obtained from that Division.

They will be yours for food. Genesis The effect of gravity on the dispersal of seeds and spores is straightforward. Heavier seeds will tend to drop downward from the parent plant, and not by themselves travel very far. Spores, being much lighter, are more influenced by physical movements in the environment, especially those of wind and water, and therefore less strictly subject to the simple motion of gravity see examples below.
Gravity may be sufficient agent for plants growing on steep slopes, but upslope movement of a population can be a problem. The naked seeds of gymnosperms are largely dependent upon gravity for dispersal. Most conifers are long-lived large shrubs or tall trees, thus taking full advantage of gravitational dispersal and allowing for gradual upslope movement of a population. Dispersal of seeds "strictly" by gravity should not overlook storm effects: seeds from a deteriorating cone growing high on a tall, narrow tree will get spread widely during a wind storm see "Wind" below.
Numerous species have mechanical means to overcome the tendency of a seed to drop close to its parent. Seedpods are often shaped so that the seeds are flung away from the parent plant with considerable force as the seedpod matures. For non-aquatic, terrestrial plants, the wind is an obvious supplier of energy for movement, and many plants clearly take advantage of this fact. This type of seed dispersal is not efficient, but very effective. Perhaps most familiar are the feather-light fiber parachutes with attached achenes that are produced by a number of species of flowers, a well-known example being the dandelion see right.
Plants that grow in water aquatic and obligate wetland species are likely to utilize water to disperse their seeds. For example, all mangroves disperse their offspring by water. In one mechanism, the seedling separates from the fruit, leaving its cotyledons behind, and—floating horizontally on the water surface—is carried away by tidal or river flow.
After a month or two, the propagated seed turns vertical in the water. Once it "feels" bottom or strands, roots start to develop and leaves appear at the upper end.
A mechanism commonly seen in coastal plants are those that promote flotation of the fruit, allowing the seed to be carried away on the tide or ocean currents. Examples would be:. A significant aspect of plant-animal cooperation involves plants designed to take advantage of animal abilities to move. Some fruit have prickly burrs or spikes that attach themselves to a passing animal's fur or feathers so that the animal will carry them away. Some seeds are contained within a soft fruit that "invites" animals to consume it.
These seeds have a tough protective outer-coating so that while the fruit is digested, the seeds will pass through their host's digestive tract intact, and grow wherever they fall. Some seeds are appealing to rodents such as squirrels who hoard them in hidden caches, often beneath the surface of the soil, in order to avoid starving during the winter and early spring. Those seeds that are left uneaten have the chance to germinate and grow into a new plant.
This list does not include the dozens of seeds used as spices coriander, cumin, etc. However, you should accept such answers if they are given. Seed germination depends on many factors, both internal and external. The most important external factors include: water, oxygen, temperature, and the correct soil conditions. Every variety of seed requires a different set of variables for successful germination.
This depends greatly on the individual seed variety and is closely linked to the ecological conditions in the plants' natural habitat. Germination requires moist conditions. Mature seeds are usually very dry and need to take up significant amounts of water before they can "come back to life.
The pressure caused by water aids in cracking the seed coat for germination.This Honor is a component of the Wilderness Master Award.
This Honor is a component of the Recreation Master Award. Knot tying is an important part of Pathfindering with tie ins to Investiture Achievement and many other honors such as the various Camping Honors, Rock Climbing, Pioneering and others. An effective way to teach knots in a club setting is to have the staff and the older Pathfinders the ones who already have the Knot Tying Honor each teach a single knot at a knot tying station.
The Pathfinders who are learning the knots will rotate through the stations. After a set time, ring a bell to signal that it's time to rotate, and do not allow the students to rotate until the bell rings otherwise, they will all gravitate to the same table.
Using this approach, each of the teachers need only learn a single knot well enough to teach it, and the students will have a chance to receive one-on-one instruction for every knot. Allow at least seven or eight minutes per station. You can do this over more than one meeting if necessary, and you can involve the entire club at once rather than only a single unit. Prior to the meeting, the rope may be cut to the proper length. Some instructors consider cutting rope during a meeting a waste of valuable teaching time, while others use it as an opportunity to teach proper binding of the rope.
To prevent the cut rope from unravelling, wrap a small piece of duct tape around it before you make the cut - then cut the tape in half. This will save time, as it binds both ends of the cut in one shot. The length of each rope should be suited to the knot it will be used for. Note that a figure eight knot does not require as much rope as a timber hitch, and that it is impossible to tie a knot on a rope that it too short to hold it. Conversely, using too much rope for small knots is a waste of good rope and money!
Remember that the amount of rope wasted on each knot will be multiplied by the number of students. A good way to determine proper rope length is to tie the desired knot using a long piece of rope, cut it, and then untie it. That's how long it needs to be. Cut as many of that length as you will have students, put them in a plastic baggie, and label the bag. You may have the knot instructors cut their own ropes, or you may have a squad of TLT's do this. Two knot tying stations can easily share an eight foot table and a hot-melt glue gun - assuming the students will be mounting the knots on a board as they tie them.
If you are organized and have the space, you can store their knot boards from year to year and let them add to it each year. By the time they are in the Ranger class, they will appreciate not having to tie 25 knots all at once.
A stick can be fastened along the edge of the board to make a convenient place to tie the hitches.Memorize in order the names of the New Testament books of the Bible and know the four areas into which the books are grouped. Memorization is so much easier when it is done in song rather than by rote. If that version does not appeal to you or your Pathfindersthere are other songs that accomplish the same goal also on YouTube. If some song using the New Testament is sung during the opening ceremonies at the beginning of each meeting, each Pathfinder in regular attendance will know the books of the New Testament by the end of the year.
Demonstrate your ability to find any New Testament book. Once the books of the New Testament are known in order, finding them in the Bible will be much easier. If you save this requirement for closer to the end of the Pathfinder year, then your Friends will have had a chance to sing the New Testament song dozens of times before they have to demonstrate their ability to do this.
Tell them to practice it at home ahead of time. A fun way of having the kids find books quickly is to have a Bible Sword Drill. This is a group activity to give the participant practice in locating the books of the Bible quickly. There are many variants of Bible Sword Drills. It is important to have them do this with a printed version of the Bible rather than an electronic device. Otherwise they are demonstrating their ability to use the device rather than to find a book in the Bible.
Another approach is to divide the Pathfinders into two teams. Then have one Pathfinder at a time look up the verse use a different verse for each Pathfinder as you time them with a stopwatch if you don't have a stopwatch, see if your cellphone does. Record their individual times and add them to the team's time. When everyone has had a turn, the team with the quickest time wins. Each year Pathfinders should memorize a new verse not previously menorized for each topic.
Your Pathfinders are not restricted to these suggested texts or the NKJV version of the Bible used on the printed sheet. Encourage them to pick texts and versions that they find most meaningful. Click here for a page with the complete text of these verses that you can print and hand out to your Pathfinders. Do you know some other great verses?

It should be challenging, yet achievable for a child at this point in his or her formal education.
The requirement to be an active member of the club is easy to brush over, but consider what it means. An active member is a youth that participates in the spiritual, mental, physical and service activities. It means showing up for meetings and completing the classwork and honors expected. It means following the Pathfinder Law and being a good representative of the club. The Pathfinder Pledge and Law are listed below. These should be recited during a Pathfinder Club's opening exercises at the beginning of each meeting.
By the end of the Pathfinder year, every Pathfinder in regular attendance will know them by heart without any effort on the part of the instructors or the Pathfinders. Every young person should have a code by which to shape his life. For the Adventist youth, the Pledge and Law is that code. These must be learned and their principles put into practice.
The Pathfinder Law is for me to:. There are 16 chapters themed to the lines of the Pathfinder Pledge.
Pathfinders can read it for themselves or use the book in club worships. The book should be available through your conference youth department.
